Plot Zone / Nightmares of Things Past (Sign ups)
« on: October 22, 2019, 06:52:08 PM »
Nightmares are something everyone has, whether they be fictional or of the past. But what happens when those nightmares become real? A Grimm has been spotted that can manipulate and manifest the memories of Hunters. Now, as the nights get longer, horrors have been seen around Vale. It will take more then weapons to stop these but a strong will, and maybe an even stronger stomach.

If you want to be involved in this topic, what would make it even better would be if the character you choose, be they student or Hunter, have some form of person or horror in their past the just can't let go.

As a signal went out from an old military facility to a one Merletta Yoru, she opened it. It was a message she thought she would never read again. It had one word. Just one small word to reactive something deep in her memory. SWORD. It was something from her past, something that had disbanded long before her current work. Using what knowledge of students were at what schools, she sent out a message to the schools. After she wiped the computer she received the message on and left, making her way to an old safehouse that was used by SWORD so many years ago. She waited for the people she sent her own message to, and began to go over any and all files left from SWORD. She was the new acting Director and that position would, she hoped, allow her to find out why SWORD was restarted.

After years of doing work no one would ever see or hear about, SMKE retired. This was Merletta's old team. The world no longer needed heroes from the shadows. She thought she could keep a normal life after everything she did but nothing could prepare her for what was coming.

A message flash along her scroll. It was from an old contact within a joint organization from all the kingdoms. An organization that had long since been disbanded. What the message read shocked her. An old project had been restarted by someone within the kingdoms and it could bring an end to Remnant.

She knew what she needed to do. If she could not get access to her old team, then she would need to get some of the best and brightest from all the schools.

She sent a message to all students and teachers. "To all who read this, your skills are requested. If you respond to this message, be warned, you may not return. Make sure you're assets are in the right hands. You will not meet in the public but rather in a safe house formerly owned by Team SMKE. Please respond with, I'm in. If you received this message by mistake, do not respond. If you feel like you can not risk losing everything, do not respond. Only respond if you have nothing to lose. SWORD requests your response."
This is just the small proof of concept. The story gets much more international man of mystery and Mission Impossible then it sounds. If you want in, Link the character you want. If you cant decide, leave the ones you want and I'll pick one.

Everywhere Else / Beneath the Mask(Riven)
« on: July 20, 2018, 10:35:31 AM »
Alex sat in a dark room, the only light illuminating him came from a computer screen. No one knew where he was located and he liked it that way. What he did was not exactly legal within the Kingdoms, but he did not care. Having been watching feeds from various places through out the kingdoms for the past week, he found his next contract. Someone he knew was planning something big, and he wanted in. He figured out her name was Maria, or well she went by the name Maria, and that she worked for someone known as "The Lady". He was fasnitated with who she was, or rather the lack of information on her. He was also supprised at the lack of information on Maria, or rather the lack of information on her before she became Maria, save for her name. He decided that would be the way he would show his capabilities to her. He pulled up a nonreply, location encrypted message to be sent to her scroll. He spent all week coming up with a meeting place but he could not think of anywhere other then his normal haunt.

The message was the following
Maria, or should I say Anya Lacrima, I have been watching meetings for some time now. I know that you are the number one to 'The Lady'. I know that meeting her is impossible but meeting with you on her behalf is a possibility. I hope that my uncovering of your old name serves as proof of my abilities, but if not, then I will gladly meet with you to prove them. I left within this document an address for where we can meet. Do not worry about being seen however, I will take care of that. I know how to blend in and work from the shadows at the same time. To prove that I am not lying about my abilities, I have wired 30,000 lein to your account as a way to say thank you for this opportunity. Even if we do not meet, 30,000 is just a drop in the bucket and a gift. The location goes by the name of The Velvet Room, the address is hidden within the code of this letter. Do not bother to reply, as both you and I desire our secrecy. Just show up at the location in a week's time and I will know you got my message and are willing to meet. And tell your employer that my services do not come cheap. Information always has a price.
                                                                                                                                Yours truly

He sent the message off with a small cypher to uncover the location, as he was sure that this Maria could not solve an encyption by him without some form of help

Approved Characters / Alexander Noire
« on: June 11, 2018, 09:25:24 PM »
Name: Alexander Noire
Spoiler: ShowHide
Aka Tarot

Age: 26

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol: The Tarot symbol for the Magician arcana

Occupation:Freelance Hacker

Appearance:Alex stand at an average 5'8 Caucasian male, weighting around 166 pounds with a mop of jet black hair. His normal eye color is brown, however, when his heads up display is active within his glasses or his mask, his eyes appear yellow. When he is not on a mission, he tends to where a black and red uniform and a pair of glasses, even though he is not visually impaired. These glass act as a heads up display to keep track of different sources while in regular clothing. While is in on a mission, or meeting with a client, he tends to wear a black and gray suit with a long trench coat cut in three parts near the tail. While in this outfit, he wears a mask to display his information.

History:Having grownup in Atlas, Alexander was exposed to the advances in technology that Atlas would bring, although having a father who was a systems technician for several large tech companies in Atlas helped. While his father would typically work at his lab on different project, from time to time, Alex would tag along to his father's work. Over the years, Alex's father began to become slightly fearful of who he was working for. Eventually, he was deemed a criminal as plans for a networking scheme involving different companies employees accounts being leaked for everyone. Alex, knowing his father would never do this, tried to defend his father, but no one believed the student. After his father's ruling, Alex took it upon himself to clear his father's name.

This is also when he took up a small obsession with tarot reading. Due to his obsession with clearing his father and the  tarot readings, his studies began to take a slump. That is all except for any class involving any form of information gathering and stealth. He eventually decided to drop out to focus more on freeing his father. He could not free his father from the charges he was given unfortunately.

This led him to resent the kingdoms and he decided to use his skills to benefit himself as well as, how he would put it, removing the kingdoms influence on the people and allowing them to have the freedom to everything. realized his loss and  picked up this ideal. He worked from behind the scenes, helping other people get what the needed for free, eventually though, he needed funds to continue doing what he was doing. Because of this, he started to work with other organizations that were not so lawful, eventually taking up the name Tarot as it expressed his idea of an untold ever changing future.

Through his means of business, he  managed to learn what he needed to create everything he would eventually be using. He now freelances work to anyone who will pay him for his services, usually leading to him backstabbing them if they choose to double cross him, usually leading to the employer be arrested and all traces of his action gone.

Personality: While he is never one to let his pride go bolstered Alex keeps a surprisingly level head under the veneer of self absorbed self-imposed holier then thou attitude, unless he is meeting a client for the first time. If it is a meeting about a job, he acts much more professional and even polite. After the first meeting, he drops his facade of professionalism and shows his true colors. Due to him not wanting his pride to be damage, he usually tends to work alone, not wanting to trust anyone on a job he could handle himself. When he is suffering from his migraine or fatigue, he become irate and pissed. While on a mission, he tends to ignore anyone else, if working with others, however, when he is alone he focuses on the mission. Outside of a mission, he usually tends to keep to himself, scouring the internet for jobs and setting up contracts with his next client.

Aura and Semblance:His aura is colored a dark red. His semblance allows him to create a small perception altering AOE that is around the size of an average office building. Anyone with within the initial cast will not really “see” Alex or anyone he is with. The semblance does not actually alter the mind but rather it just ignore that he is there. Anyone who enters after the semblance has been activated or any technology within are not affected. In addition, due to the massive amount of strain using the semblance costs, if Alex or anyone within his group were to make any form of aggressive or quick movement, his semblance would cancel out. Once activated, unless disabled via an aggressive action, lasts for 5-10 minutes, depending on the area needed to be covered. If the Semblance is used in quick succession for more then two uses, Alex starts to have small headaches, however if used to often the headaches start to become severe, usually leading to either a migraine or fatigued. If he enters this state, he can usually cure it
with a couple hours of sleep, if he is not pushed.

Combat Behavior:Alex tends to stay out of combat whenever possible, relying more on wit and words to try to deescalate. When a battle does happen, he usually tends to duck behind any for of cover and fire a small pistol from behind it while trying to flee and protect himself. While this is his normal method for combat, he does tend to use his remote controlled sniper as an intimidation factor, usually "relying" on the power of his enemies seeming like he has numbers. If both methods fail, he will use any other means around him to flee, even if he has anyone with him or not.

Primary Form: Just a simple silenced pistol that can carry 18 shots
Dust Functions: It can fire standard Dust rounds
History: He managed to acquire this pistol from one of his first missions.

Name: Angel
Primary Form: A remote operated collapsible Sniper Rifle able to be operated from a small concealed device within his pocket. It is equipped with a standard clip of 24 rounds.
Dust Functions: It can fire standard Dust rounds
History: He needed a way to protect himself from a distance without relying on others.

As Liliana Blossom was leaving her classes for the day, she received a phone call from a number she knew all too well. It was her old manager. She had been trying to ignore him for the past couple weeks. She sighed and answered the call. "Lily, baby, how are ya? Listen, I know you're retired and all, but how would you like to do one thing for me? A couple of my other clients are in a music festival and they would love to have you be a headliner, preforming through out the days, and also judging a contest for new bands. What do ya think? Just think about. Hell, I'll even through in some free tickets for you to give out to people you know. Sleep on it and give me a call. Talk to ya soon." He hung up before she could even speak. She thought it over and looked at the numbers on her scroll, which for someone of her caliber was actually low. Eventually, after contacting some of those numbers, she called her manager back. He agreed to what she wanted and sent the tickets and even arranged a limo to take them to the festival. As she was waiting for the others, she went over various set lists and became zoned into her music.

I had an idea.

The first set of themes I could think of was for Merletta

Main Theme:
Battle theme: Massive Explosion
Edge of Victory theme: Explosion
In Case I Ever go Evil:God in Fire

Plot Zone / Complete Global Grimm Saturation (Non-Canon)(SIgn Ups) (1/12)
« on: January 31, 2018, 10:34:52 AM »
Having failed in Racoon City, the Umbrella Corp had created a branch in Remnant and worked with the Schnee Dust Company. Seeing the problem with Grimm, Umbrella decided to find a way to combined Dust with a prototype biochemical they had been working on before Racoon City. After setting off a couple Dust attacks through the kingdoms, the Grimm problem seemed all but done. However, the Grimm never truly stayed dead and rumors started to spread about half dead Grimm still roaming around.

This is where we start, it's going to be starting just before a zombie Grimm outbreak. As we go through, spot will open up as people will die. There will also be an OOC bit at the end of every post, keeping track of your ammo count (for ranged characters), aura level (it will refresh but only after a set amount of time, usually after 4 or five posts after combat.) You will also need to keep track of supplies. Think of this as a text based RPG survival Horror. Any questions should be asked here or on Discord.

Having just finished watching the news report, Merletta began to go through her list of contacts. She found three others who either she knew were reliable or they owed something to her. After giving each other them a call, she left her shop and went to a small seedy pub. She waited in the back of the pub, smoking and going over the news report on her scroll. She managed to get the recording through some of her old contacts. She noticed the attack matched one of her old assignments. "This is not what it seems. We ended that program. Something is not right." She was focused on the video footage that she could not tell when someone arrived.

It's the most wonderful time of the year and Liliana knew it was. She had planned for months to get everything right for this event. Everything was ready. The tree was up next to the stage, Poinsettias on all the tables, food being prepared. She was excited and worried at the same time. Having worked on everything by herself, she was feeling the stress of it all. She wanted to just give up and walk away. She knew however that she would just go back to do it anyway. After hours of prep, she gave a sigh and a smile. She was done setting up and was leaving to work on her set list and rehearse.

Later that night
Lily greeted every student and teacher as they walked in. Her long rose red dress stood out among everyone else and complimented her cherry blossom pink hair. She had a small mic attached around her ear as shortly after everyone had arrived she was going to being her set and then mingle with other students.

Kind of inspired by both the new frozen short before Coco and Coco itself. Can you describe what your characters do during the holidays that makes them unique for their families.

For Merletta, she mostly puts up a small shrine in her office to wish her father a safe afterlife, as she has done every year after he died.

Liliana usually participates in lantern festivals honoring everyone

And Blair uses the holidays as a way to honor those who past in battle or in defense of the city, usually involving the burning of a small statue for everyone.
